Native American Instruments – Presentation

Native American Music Resources to help your class explore the instruments & culture of North America.

This is a full PowerPoint presentation that details the instruments, the symbolic significance of instruments & how they were used throughout the ages. Perfect for North American Heritage Month in your KS2 classroom.

This is a great opportunity to commemorate the rich and diverse cultures, traditions & histories and acknowledge the important contributions of Native American/Indigenous people. It is so important to educate your classroom about the bias, discrimination, and unique challenges they faced both historically and currently and the ways in which they have confronted these challenges. Music is a great cross-curricular tool for starting these conversations off.

Feeling a bit extra? Play some traditional native American music as your class walk into the lesson and have them discuss the sounds they hear.
